Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

The authors of this blog want to elimnate flash fraud on Ebay

We doubt very much that this 64 GB DataTraveler is genuine

with one comment


We consider it highly unlikely that the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives listed at auction on ebay by cosgrove.tyler91 (a member registered in Canada) will prove to be genuine. Buyers should check serial numbers with Kingston – we don’t think they will verify them as genuine.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

  1. Here we have another seller with disappearing Kingstons.

    Seven listings for the 64gb DT150 Kingston from this seller have completely vanished from ebay as a result of action by Kingston to make ebay remove them.

    You really do not need any further proof than that.

    If you have bought a drive from this seller, please test and send in your results to the email address given at Your input is welcomed and valued by the team here at fightflashfraud. The more evidence gathered on these sellers, the better. This is your chance to help fight against the injustice we all suffer as a result of this ongoing fraud.
